An evening with RexMemorial alumnus and honorary degree recipient, Rhodes Scholar, and Canada’s most opinionated man – seen, read, and listened to by millions of Canadians each week – Rex Murphy will speak on the St. John’s campus Oct. 5.
His new book, Canada And Other Matters Of Opinion, offers a cornucopia of comment on a head-spinning range of subjects, and covers a range of topics as eclectic and wide ranging as the intelligence that put them together.
Since graduating from Memorial University and spending time at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, Mr. Murphy has been writing and talking. His skills in that area have made him one of Canada’s most-watched and best-read commentators, while his speeches have earned standing ovations from coast to coast. A frequent presence on CBC television and radio, including a regular commentary spot with “Point of View,” Mr. Murphy writes a weekly column for the Globe and Mail.
Rex Murphy will be launching his new book, Canada And Other Matters Of Opinion, at the D. F. Cook Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 5. Admission is free but pre-registration is recommended by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Free parking available in Lot 15. Copies of his book will be on sale at the event.
